Howdy all, it's your favorite future kilted groom all up in the hizouse! 

 

Obviously I haven't gotten any cooler during the challenges, but that's just all part of my charm. This time around will be continuing to attempt to build habits, tightening the belt, and getting myself focused. I'm going to try to be more strict this time around. I'm starting to run low on time and I need to start getting actual results going on, well...I got some results from the last challenge. I definitely feel stronger and notice more musculature, but I've not done much in the weight loss department...only having gone down three or four pounds during the last challenge...and that was only at the very end. I'm hoping to speed up my results this time. I also intend to return to the measurement tracking and picture taking this challenge, so keep on the lookout for this post getting updated on the 23rd with that information. I might refine these challenges within that time frame as well... we'll see.

 

 

MAIN CHALLENGE

As for the past few challenges, I've been saying "Look awesome in a Kilt for my wedding day" I'm going to say that's still the goal but I want to be more specific. I hope to hit around 180 lbs by the wedding date of 09/20/2014. That's a weight loss of around 40 lbs, might be a bit much so I won't be devastated if I don't reach it, but that's the dream.

 

MOTIVATION

The motivation is the hope to see the looks and reactions of everyone when the see me in the best shape of my life standing up at the infamous altar. Not to mention the increase capability, improved emotional state, and other benefits from the healthier life.

 

SUB-QUESTS

 

Quest 1 - Path to Paleo: Avoid Cereal Grains and Dairy [CON:5]

Carried over from the previous two challenges, I'm sticking with this until I can manage an A rating.

 

A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks

B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks

C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four  Weeks

D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks

F: >3 Cheats a Week

 

Quest 2 - Snackless Living: Cut out snacking between meals [CON:2]

One of the issues of the failure to lose weight was likely due to the amount of snacking I did between my main meals. I hope to resolve this and focus on weight loss by cutting out snacking all together.

 

A: No Cheats For All Six Weeks

B: 1 Cheat A Week For Four Weeks

C: 2 Cheats a Week for Four  Weeks

D: 3 Cheats a Week for Six Weeks

F: >3 Cheats a Week

 

Quest 3 - Work it Out: 3x Exercises 3x a week [STR:3|STA:2]

Even though I didn't quite ace the last one, I was close enough that I thought I could upgrade this to add in additional exercise. The aim is to do at least 3 exercises at least 3 times a week.

 

A: Perform Exercises 3x a Week All Six Weeks

B: Perform Exercises 3x a Week For Four Weeks

C: Perform Exercises 2x a Week All Six Weeks

D: Perform Exercises 2x A Week For Four Weeks

F: Perform Exercises <2x A Week For Four Weeks

 

SIDE QUEST

 

Side Quest - All About the Benjamins: Create and Stick to a Budget [WIS:3]

Financial woes have proved to be a major source of stress and frustration, and I worry that it will eventually cause issues within my upcoming marriage as well. For now I have a habit of living paycheck to paycheck, and doing a poor job of it with an ever increasing regularity of overdrafts thus causing me to lose even more money. This is a situation that needs to stop, and in order to do that I'll need to create a budget and stick with it. Game plan is create budget during first week, and then stick with it for the following 5 weeks. 

 

A: Create Budget in Week #1 and stick to it for 5-6 Weeks

B: Create Budget in Week #1 and stick to it for 4 Weeks

C. Create Budget in Week #1/2 and stick to it for 3-4 Weeks

D. Create Budget after Week #2 and stick to it for 3 Weeks

F. Do not create budget, or stick to created budget for <3 Weeks

Great challenge!!! I love the budget part! I am definitely in your shoes living paycheck to paycheck... however with my hubby not working full time (he is in school to become a respiratory therapist) there is definitely more month and bills left at the end of the money, so I find it almost impossible to keep on a budget currently. But it can be done!!

 

As for diet, do you eat sugar? I noticed when I cut out sugar, the weight just started falling off!!! 

 

Good luck! Of course I am subbing!:)

There's still some sugar in my diet, but nothing too major. Thanks to my diabetes I try to keep very aware of the sugars that come into the diet. I keep the bacon going though, so there's sugar there, but otherwise it mostly comes from fruit/vegetables.

I love me my bacon too much, I'd like to try to cure my own (without sugar!) at some point, but I've not yet got around to it. So we'll see what happens.

 

Thanks to everyone for the support!

Good look with the snackless living! 

Also, curing your own bacon sounds awesome. You should have that as a life quest for a challenge sometime! haha

Yeah, sugar is one of the primary ingredients utilized in the curing of bacon.

There's various options out there for it. There's some paleo bacon you can get, but they tend to be very pricey, or try curing it at home...which depending on your sources could actually be less expensive than regular bacon. Something like this.

Dude as someone who's lost 44.5lbs and counting in 5 months I can tell you for sure that you can burn that much and then some for your wedding.

This is your chance whilst you have time, you've got this, it's going to be awesome! Am very excited for you! Hope for the best bro!

Main post update with measurements and photos, got a new camera over christmas which apparently shows a lot more, so it's not cut off like pictures from some of my earlier photos. Though it's a bit darker than I'd like as proven by the fact that the kilt looks black (at least on my screen) and it's really got the Blackwatch Tartan. :shrugs: Take it as it is I guess, pictures are loaded up in my gallery on here, if you want to see larger sizes.

Thanks! I was keeping it shorter (to appease the prewife mostly) but I figure I'll just let it grow out until the wedding, give myself options and see what works and what doesn't.
